Doesn’t a comfortable white dress sound really nice? It’s basically summer and all I want to shop for are white dresses. They just scream summer fashion, don’t they? And when I think of summer, I think of effortless. Maybe because it reminds me of when I was little and summers were the time to be lazy. School is done for the year, no responsibility (let’s be real the only “real” responsibility we had was to go to school and do your homework), I slept in, played in the park all day, and lots of grilled food. Man I really miss those days.
When it comes to Summer, effortless and comfortable are synonymous to me. So I definitely want a comfortable white dress and this Lou & Grey Pom Pom dress is sooo comfortable! Actually, almost everything from Lou & Grey is comfortable. And I love that they can curate comfortable and chic in a piece. Everything is so buttery soft!
Sizing For This Comfortable White Dress
As for sizing, I think this dress fits a bit large. Therefore, I recommend sizing down. I’m wearing an XS and I usually wear a small. It’s a very roomy dress. Which in my opinion is a good thing! It’s roomie, but it doesn’t look like you are drowning in it.
It is a midi length dress, but it falls above the calves yet past the knees (as you can tell in the photos) which is the perfect summer length dress. I don’t wear mini dresses often and sometimes a true midi-length can look too dressed up for a casual summer day, ya know? I’m 5’4″.
Btw, this dress has pockets!! I always have to point that out, because we all know that is one of the best features to have! Also, for a white dress it is not see-through at all. There is lining underneath.
Rattan Details For The Summer
I also tend to gravitate towards anything rattan for the summer. Lately, I’ve been into oversized belts and when I saw this rattan belt, I just had to have it as my summer belt. I’ve worn it multiple times in several different outfits already! The belt fits true to size. But ultimately I decided to size down (XS) because I knew I would want to wear it around my waist occasionally and didn’t want the extra length hanging down.
I’ve probably worn these mules several times already. They’re neutral so they pretty much go with anything and everything.
By the way, how pretty are the trees in these photos? These were taken a few weeks ago when the trees around Chicago were in full bloom. The pink blooms are obviously my favorite. I wish they would last longer than a few days. A month would be amazing!
